I’ve been Geeking out on this time-saving no-brainer pasting trick my Dad showed me.
This is for you IF YOU ARE A COPY & PASTER and a Windows user.
I want you to do this now: Press the Windows Key + V.
Did this just pop up? If you haven’t already activated this clipboard on your computer, you’ll be prompted to turn on the clipboard (it’s a one-time thing).
If that pops up, click “Turn on”.
Now… go copy three things.
Double-click or triple-click on some of the text right here in this blog post. Then do Ctrl+C.
Then put your cursor anywhere that you can type, and press Windows Key + V.
Mind blown? Once this clipboard is turned on, it will display the LAST TWENTY-FIVE THINGS YOU COPIED (every time you hit Windows Key + V)!!
You can then click on the one you want to paste, or use your arrow keys and enter to select a previous pasted item.
BUT WAIT, THERES MORE… it even stores images that you put on your clipboard.
Try it out and let me know what you think. I’m seriously obsessed.
Mac Users: Here’s the version for you…
Install the Extension Clipboard History Pro into your web browser.
If it works even half as well as the windows one, you’re still going to love me… and please feel free to report back how you like it!
